Weather Viewer

Description: Get real-time weather information while experiencing it first-hand in a 3D environment. Swipe forward and backward on the trackpad to move through time and watch the world change around you as it mimics the forecasted weather.

Wishing for snow on a sunny day? Want to unwind by watching the rain? For something different, swipe up to cycle through different weather environments. Just swipe down to return to the current forecast.

Review: Have you ever wanted to be a weather presenter? Now you can with the Weather Viewer for the Gear VR. This is a virtual reality weather app that puts you into the weather that it currently is at your location (using your phones tracker). So if it’s raining it will be raining in VR! You can also forward and back time to see what the weather will or was like.

OK, so it won’t turn you into a weather presenting celebrity, but it is nice to stay in the app and cycle through all the different weather types. Turn the rain onto heavy and stand in a thunderstorm, it all looks and feels amazing. Sure there isn’t much point to it other than experiencing different weather types. But maybe in the future in the future it will be how everyone views the weather report!
